The 2010 Mongoose Sabrosa SS Bike frame is the quintessential single-speed city bike. We're talking about a sure way for a bike maniac to get his dream single/fixie bike that has geometry set up for comfort and great visibility, and light enough for quick, from-the-hip city riding. Sabrosa is made from lightweight 6061 aluminum which is super light, super strong with a hip factor that brings endless riding pleasure. This classic will never be outdated...it just gets cooler the more you customize.
Butted 6061 aluminum is light, responsive, and ultra strong
Integrated headset beefs up strength and steering response
Upright geometry for excellent handling and superior strength
I purchased this frame to build up a single speed or IGH bike from scratch. I was intrigued by the "Slot Jockey-ITS chain tensioning dropout system". The frame comes without the drop out system so it is completely useless as nothing can be mounted there. No one can supply the custom drop outs. The frame in large weighs 4.74 lbs. So if you want a heavy aluminum frame that you would have to machine your own custom drop outs for then this is a great deal.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
